Oil rig in the bay

Recommended Posts

The oil rig has now come to the attention of the media this morning,

what I don’t understand is one minute we hear about a marine conservation area

around here then a oil rig turns up to explore the site.

They say they were only test bore holes but why allow them to do this if you were not allowing them to extract the oil.

It was also mentioned B.P found deposits before there?

Anyone know what the exclusion zone is? Understandably there are mixed feelings but its pretty close to some popular marks so Feb is not a bad month to choose as long as there are no long term effects.

If you type in google search ENSCO 72 a link to the marinetraffic.com will appear, on there you can view the track marks where the rig is slowly moving around the area.
